Enabling memcached, redis, and other object caching services
Our web hosting services don’t have Memcached, Redis, or any other object caching service installed. However, we do have the Redis and Memcached PHP modules installed on our shared hosting platform, which means we do support the ability to connect to a 3rd party object caching services.
Enabling the Redis or Memcached PHP Modules
Here are the steps you need to take in order to enable the modules:
- Log in to cPanel.
- Click on Select PHP Version under Software.
- Under PHP Extensions, you can check the box next to Memcached or Redis, to enable the module.
The page will no reload, the cPanel interface will simply show a green success message when the change has been completed.
Instead of using Redis or Memcached, we’d highly recommend using LiteSpeed Cache, which we do support. LiteSpeed has plugins for WordPress, Magento, Joomla, Prestashop, Opencart, Xenforo, Larevel, Shopware, and Media Wiki.
